Amuneke dumps Sudanese club over unpaid salaries

Former Nigeria international, Emmanuel Amuneke has parted company with Sudanese club Al Khartoum Watani where he has been coach for only three months.

There had been reports early on Wednesday from Sudan that Amuneke, who recorded 3 wins 2 draws and 3 defeats, was sacked due to poor results.

But the ex Green Eagles star told Complete Sports that it was both parties that deliberately severed their ties on Tuesday, even as the club have agreed to pay him a compensation fee.

“I wasn’t sacked,” Amuneke said.

“The director of the club called me to a meeting to explain why we have not been paid and he suggested that we take a pay cut as their major sponsors have not been supportive.

“He was very sincere which I appreciate so well.

“But they (Al Khartoum Watani) agreed to pay what is being owed and of course what’s binding in the contract which was signed between both parties.

“The director was sincere and plain in his meeting with me on the dire financial conditions of the club. So there was no point staying on. I wasn’t sacked like they’re claiming here in Sudan.”
